How do you use sensor data to view flooding information?
StormSense Windy App currently shows water level data with rich weather data from Windy and gives the ability to click on a water level sensor to display the current information. Double clicking on the same location will provide dropdown panel to select a specified period of time the real-time water graphs.

Example – This was a recent trip to Lotus Creek on Sandbridge Road in Virginia Beach. It was a sunny but windy day on April 13, 2020. It has rained the day before. I used the app to check the water level and saw the water was above the action stage (shown by the yellow line on the chart. I drove to the location to confirm and took pictures at the time. Public Works was closing the road due the flooding at that time.

Several sensors listed here provide water levels, several other parameters and are listed by source.
